More Lang Worth Generic Jingles and production stuff from the 1950s.....

Just a little late with my monthly post....which will likely be more occasional as we move forward. work on other projects and yard work this summer might slow me down to post on the jetsam over the next few months. It makes more sense to me to just post when we have something to post. Stay Tuned.


More from my small collection of Lang Worth Program Service 10 inch records. You see these on ebay now and then, usually at somewhat ridiculous prices. Some people think when it's old it's "collectable" and sometimes they see $$$ in their eyes. Truth is, price is only as good as what someone is willing to pay for it. For this stuff, the demand isn't that high, unless you're someone like me, who likes this stuff. If you're also like me, you collect on a budget, so the lower the price the better....

Here's two discs from the late 50s. One of the sides are various vocal chorus type sings, someone are just intros to have the announcer come in afterward, but still kinda neat to listen to, and maybe you can use these in CD compilations you make just for fun.

Enjoy!

  1. Hi, thanks for the LangWorth material. As bad as it always was, but worth putting online for posterity!

    Glad you're ok. Don't let the web come between you and real life.

  2. Though there's some debate over once the jingle really began, history can indicate one single moment as the stage where the jingle really got off the floor and began running. In 1926, a then little-known cereal brand emerged having a clever little bit of music to market their product. The organization have been likely to stop selling their product, but observed that sales spiked in the region where they'd performed this jingle and made the decision to really make it a national campaign. That little-known cereal brand was Wheaties, that has continued to be a high selling brand to this day and was saved with a jingle over 80 years back.

  3. Are these just snippetts of longer, fuller jingles & b.g.'s, or are these the entierty of each one? I think the former. Why not post ALL of the audio??? The scans are really nice, but we should be treated to the beautiful blue vinyl. Thanx for what you present here, albeit incomplete.

  4. Weel after further examinationing, by me, I do indeed see that these are the full jingley spots! My bad. Still, what about them vinyl scans?

  6. It took me a while to find the time to come back and download these, but I got here. Thanks.
    (The "hint" of blue vinyl peeking out from the sleeve is just fine for me.)
